dark red; the bouquet offers an air of liqueur black fruit – it glides along, is clean and not varied. This has a well grounded depth, with a fire in its tannins, a natural force to it. It lacks subtlety and forces its way into the conversation, but does have something to say, especially with a daube of beef, for instance. The aftertaste is oaked. 14°. 80% Gren, 10% Syr, 10% M, 100% oak raising, 10,000 b this year. To 2017  June 2013
